I've visited the Ilha de Moçambique last year and choose this guest house as the key point to relax and have fun. The location in the Island is great, near the Museum and close to the fortress and the Ponte Alfandega (which has a usable beach), also different restaurants are very close. The check in was perfect, easy and confortable,... More

After living in Mozambique for 4 years we wanted to stay somewhere special for our last trip to Ilha de Mocambique so we chose this hotel. The location is beautiful and the rooms are decorated with interesting and exotic touches but we were disappointed that the room we were given was not one of the nicer ones even though we... More

We took our Peace Corps volunteer son here for a few days' break and were delighted with Terraco. There are spectacular views of the ocean, full breakfast, exquisitely decorated rooms -- each with its own particular take on Indian and African art. There are not many rooms--we felt we had the run of the place. The manager was especially gracious.... More

I can't imagine a better place to stay on Ilha de Mozambique. This beautifully restored historic building offers wonderful rooms with unique decor in every space -- lots of little nooks and places to chill out. The rooftop offers the perfect vantage point to watch the sunset. This island is so small, location doesn't really matter, but TdQ is just... More

We stayed 4 days at Terraço das Quintandas at Ilha de Moçambique. Mr. Antonio, the hotel manager, was always very thoughtful and made sure we had an excelent stay. The rooms are uniquely decorated and facing the ocean. The mixed influences of African and Oriental furniture and art pieces made the rooms and common areas even more exotic. The swinging... More

During Xmas and New Year season, we spent some days in Ilha de Moçambique, near Nampula, north of Mozambique. Thanks to our friends who live in Maputo, we had the privilege to get to know and stay at "Terraço das Quitandas", a beautifully renovated and decorated guest-house in the Island. Isa and Sergio, the owners, have done a wonderful job... More

The Terraço das Quitandas holds an indisputed first place in sleeping matters on Ilha de Mozambique. Although it is still making a name for itself, it has some strong arguments: a great location near the fort and the palace, a tasteful decoration mainly from eastern inspiration and 6 beatiful rooms, each one different from the other (the patio one is...
